Computer Animation Posing Made Easy

Computer Animation Posing Made Easy: #animtip "The key application is to animate characters for computer games or movies. Since the device is "physically there", you can hold it in your hands and it is three-dimensional, it becomes much easier to pose a character than manipulating its virtual representation on the computer screen using keyboard and mouse. It is almost like playing with a doll," explains Professor Olga Sorkine-Hornung from ETH Zurich's Institute of Visual Computing.
